    Plus [+] signs in the Call numbers


    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20, 21, 22, 23
    • Relevant for Installation Type: Dedicated-Direct, Direct, Local, Total Care


    The course-03 service displays ++h and ++i in the "Current Location" column for library owned-items with an LC call number. For example, in RVL50 item barcode 30207000400890 displays in the Current Location column as ++hPN1997++i.J694 2000. In the Original Location column, the barcode displays as PN1997 .J694 2000.


    When an item's information is overridden by a temporary change, the original information is saved.
    The tab100 variable "STORE-CALL-NO-DOLLAR" determines what string will replace the $ mark in the call number when the call number field is saved. 
    It is suggested to use a string that will not appear as part of the call number data.
